One in five adults has a mental health condition. These are our loved ones, our neighbors, our colleagues and our friends. But when care providers are exhausted and overworked, they can’t do their best work to help clients recover and heal. In today’s behavioral health system, real barriers stand in clients’ way—and many of these issues stem from the fact that workers aren’t being heard or supported. Join us in listening to the voices of those who work to meet the needs of our families and communities. United we heal! October 15th @ 6pm Ecotrust: 721 NW 9th Ave. Suite 200 This event is free, and is open to behavioral health providers, allies, and representatives of community partner organizations.

The delicious adventures experienced by Charlie Bucket on his visit to Willy Wonka’s mysterious chocolate factory light up the stage in this captivating adaptation of Roald Dahl’s fantastical tale.

All are welcomed to attend this FREE life-changing training which incorporates traditional Native American teachings through stories, exercises, and discussions that are even more relevant and needed today. We are all hurt by systems of colonization. We will offer some suggestions on how to be a good ally and form partnerships with the traditional stewards of this land.

Lunch and snacks—vegan, vegetarian, omnivore, gluten-free options available. Historically, environmentalism has focused on the experiences and goals of higher-income, white males. Today environmentalists that are looking to "diversify" the movement must put aside their agenda, and seek to listen, learn from, and join the global movement of indigenous and communities of color. The objectives for these workshops include: *Educate non-Native allies how to work with Native Americans and communities of color *Authentic alliance building that reflects indigenous-led organizing, strategies and values *Prepare participants for volunteer opportunities at Native community events *How to support Native activism rather than perpetuating colonial systems of oppression *Honor indigenous traditions without appropriating their cultures Idle No More ~ History of Colonization and Healing Historical Trauma The workshop shows the 500 years of indigenous resistance that began in 1452 from a Native American perspective. Incorporating traditional teachings and stories, and how the Doctrine of Discovery was the foundation for the historical colonization, genocide, relocation, termination, forced assimilation of Native Americans. To heal from the historical trauma, you must first understand how colonization has impacted indigenous people. By acknowledging our collective past and focusing on the present healing often leads participants to become aware of historical barriers that can be removed effectively in a safe and comfortable environment. Idle No More ~ Spiritual Activism This workshop delves into the Native’s connection with the land, environment, and Spirit. Explore how to incorporate ‘Spirit' into our activism. Discuss how to start organizing nonviolent direct actions that are Spirit-led instead of ego/mind-led. Idle No More ~ The 7th Fire Explore how working with Natives toward common goals of social and environmental justice involves letting go of unconscious racism and privilege. Learn what it means to be a good ally, and how taking the lead from indigenous activists, and community leaders have been changing conventional activism. Learn what Native-led organizing looks like, and stand in solidarity with Natives to ensure our rights to clean air, water, and protection of Mother Earth for us and future generations. Idle No More ~ Beyond Standing Rock Highlighting the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL), and the Standing Rock Sioux tribe’s right to protect their sacred water, ancestral lands, burial grounds, traditional way of life, community, and treaty rights. We will focus on colonization and decolonization, and learn how to integrate the tradition-based healing and knowledge into your activism from a Native American perspective. Workshop Presenter: Sweetwater Nannauck (Tlingit, Haida, Tsimshian) Director of Idle No More Washington Sweetwater is an Idle No More activist who advocates for the protection of the fragile environment of the Northwest Coast, for tribal sovereignty rights, and the traditional way of life of Native people. She conducts Idle No More 'Decolonizing Our Activism' workshops in a respectful way that is both healing and empowering. November 10, 2017, is the 5th anniversary of Idle No More. Since then Idle No More Washington has had over 60 events and nonviolent direct actions that address local and global issues.

Pacific NW Drawers Artist Talk with O'Hara Shipe and Nolan Streitberger Saturday, October 28, 3:00 PM All Blue Sky events and programs are free and open to the public. Join us for a special afternoon with artists O'Hara Shipe and Nolan Streitberger as they speak about their photo series currently on view in Blue Sky's 2017 Drawers exhibition. Both artists have created bodies of work that disrupt stereotypes of women and girls and tell important stories that are often eclipsed by dominant cultural narratives. In Shipe's series, Beyond the Game: Defining the Female Athlete, she provides visual space for her subjects to unabashedly present themselves to the world as they want to be seen, while Streitberger's photo essay following his 6-year-old daughter's daily summer activities highlights her delightfully unselfconscious strength, independence, defiance, and playfulness. Blue Sky established the Pacific Northwest Photography Viewing Drawers program in 2007 to feature a juried, public archive of original prints by contemporary photographers based in the region. The Drawers program has quickly become a favorite aspect of Blue Sky’s ongoing programming, featuring original prints by more than 60 artists based in Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana. The Drawers is a year-long exhibition, changing every April to coincide with Portland Photo Month, and available to approximately 25,000 visitors annually.

Wendy Darling loves to tell stories to her brothers, Michael and John. But when her father announces she must move out of the nursery, Peter Pan comes to visit the children and whisks them away to Neverland. Their journey introduces them to the Lost Boys, Mermaids, Indians and even the infamous pirate, Captain Hook! It’s Peter to the rescue when Wendy is taken captive by the dreaded captain, who has his own sinister plans in mind for our hero. Based on the Disney film and J.M. Barrie’s enchanting play, Disney’s Peter Pan Jr. is a modern version of the timeless tale about a boy who wouldn’t grow up.

Based on the cherished New Line Cinema holiday classic, Elf the Musical Jr. features songs by Tony Award-nominees, Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin, with a book by Tony Award-winners, Thomas Meehan and Bob Martin. Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list and that his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.
